We cannot build cruisera overnight. in a few months or usually in a year. If the Committee, is Satiated that we are in a reasonable way of preparation for December, 1936, that is one thing.

If the United States desires to 4n-crease and encourage the Ill-will of Japan, already pretty bitter by reason Of our ill-advised meddling in her' affairs, we need only participate in the proposed boycott of Japan by the or that part the world controlled by the League of Nations. The boycott is at best a danger ous and cowardly weapon, used to injur or ruin, an antagonist -that we do not dare or care-to face in the open. To use it as an International weapon is (i) confession of impotence, (2) a declaration of economic warfare which tbere is no defense, 77.7' The Herald thinks we were Ill-advised to mix in the European and Asiatic controversies of the League of Nations. We are not a member of thafTibunal and our people have registered an emphatic No to the Wilsonian proposal of becoming a memberof 1L The Leagues business is not oars. While we ean with some degree of dfgnitywithdraw from a dangerous and untenable position, let us do so and refuse to have anything to do with an international boycott of our traditional friends and recent allies.
